Comedienne, actress and Internet sensation Anjelah Johnson brings her stand-up act to The Orleans Showroom June 28 and 29.
Johnson’s viral video “Nail Salon” skyrocketed her into online stardom around the same time she earned a recurring role on the sketch comedy series “MADtv” in 2007 and 2008. Her infamous “MADtv” character “Bon Qui Qui,” a disgruntled fast food employee with no filter, received worldwide success and has been watched by more than 55 million YouTube viewers.
Johnson hosted a one-hour Comedy Central special, “Anjelah Johnson: That’s How We Do It” in 2009. A second special will be released from her hometown of San Jose, Calif. later this year.
As an actress Johnson has starred in, and lent her voice to, numerous films including “The Box,” “Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel,” “Marmaduke” and “Our Family Wedding.” On the small screen, Johnson has guest starred on “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” “On the Up” and “Ugly Betty.”
Johnson began her career as a professional cheerleader for the Oakland Raiders. As an Oakland Raiderette, she was named Rookie of the Year in 2002 and performed in Super Bowl XXXVII. She credits cheering on the Raiders for helping her make the transition to stand-up comedy.
